justin west coaching notes.....
Two hours farming, six hours surfing with Luca Guichard & San Pindsle and an HiiT post surf work out; we deserved a dinner out with our buddy San and a special vitamin juice smoothie thanks to Luis from Agua Salgada in Sagres!
We had plenty of footage on the video camera today but it will be necessary to cut & edit, surf was small but with the occasional doubling up of a wave with some good shape.
Key learning & coaching objectives:
You think you don't have any more energy; you actually do.
- Slow the body movements, focus on the breathing, less frantic try find the speed with the rail and projection through turns.
- If things are not going so well; take a break, come out, re-assess, make a better wave strategy.
- Re-enter the wave with more giving/flexible compressed at the knees.
